1 – Marriage Conference
We are so grateful that our church provided this fun and practical event! Read my recap post for the highlights: Why We Attended a Marriage Conference
2 – Anne of Green Gables
The same weekend as the marriage conference, we were able to get tickets to see Anne of Green Gables at The Logos Theatre! We love going to plays and musicals, so this was a fun and unexpected treat!
I recommend checking out this theatre if you’re local to Greenville, SC. The venue isn’t fancy but their productions are really top-notch. We hope to catch their Christmas program in December!
3 – Downtown Date Night
We’re grateful to live in an area with lots of little towns, and Greer is our favorite! The downtown has been restored with cute storefronts, great restaurants and brick streets with lighting and decor that makes you feel like you’re in a Hallmark movie!
Greer hosted outdoor dining events on Friday nights this month – it was like a fancy food festival! You could order from an outdoor station and then sit down to eat at a cute table decorated by that restaurant. So much better than squatting on a curb to eat your food! 🙂
I really appreciated that the city truly made the best of these times! We had a great time enjoying the cool weather and pretty setting.
4 – Tennessee Day
I spent the day with my family in East Tennessee and stopped to take in the view from the overlook on the way there. Isn’t that gorgeous?
After hanging out with my adorable, hilarious and all-boy nephews for a few hours, my sister and I took them to Dollar Tree. When we got out of the car, one of them said “We’re at Dollar Tree! Hooray!” We’re teaching them young! 🙂
I ended the day with supper at my parent’s house. My mom made her Chicken Piccata, Red Skin Mashed Potatoes with Lemony Gravy, Asparagus and one of her famous salads, and I got to try her new Apple Cake for dessert.
My mouth is literally watering after typing that. This gorgeous arrangement included flowers my dad brought her that day. ❤ We had a great time talking over supper and for a little while after! It was a great day.
5 – Piano Fun
I received two Disney piano books for my birthday – it’s been so much fun to play through them! I’ve had to work hard (I’m a lazy pianist who relies a lot on my ear) but I’m loving it!
(I have several videos of me playing hymns over on IGTV – last week’s was Come, Christians, Join to Sing!)
Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found. Psalm 119:35
I have been reading Psalm 119 this month, and it has been so good for my heart. It doesn’t take much for me to be overwhelmed and annoyed by all the things people are telling me to do right now. “Wear this. Stand here. Don’t touch that. Believe this. Vote now. Don’t roll down your window in the Target pickup area.” (That last one makes me laugh)
It’s so good to know that following God’s law doesn’t wear me out or overwhelm me – it does the opposite and gives me life! He is merciful, trustworthy and always the same. Amen!
